Synopsis: From Jack the Ripper to the cosy crimes of the Golden Age, renowned historian Lucy Worsley explores the evolution of the typical British murder.
      A Very British Murder is Lucy Worsley's enthralling exploration of a curious national obsession. Our fascination with 'a good murder' -- from the Ratcliffe Highway Murders at the turn of the nineteenth century to Edith Thompson and Freddie Bywaters, hanged in 1922 for the murder of Edith's husband -- became a form of national entertainment, inspiring novels, plays and films, puppet shows and paintings, poetry and true-crime journalism. This riveting investigation shows how during the birth of modern Britain murder entered our national psyche -- and has been a part of us ever since.
